Is another world possible ? With V. Amy Miller
As we emerge from the global Covid experience, the path may seem littered with confusion, violence, and alienation. Rather than grow dismayed by external experiences that show cruelty and heartlessness, how can we use our vulnerability to effectively channel this energy into more supportive practice?
The May 16th public talk will present an introduction and brief overview of the theme, while the May 18th-20th retreat weekend will offer a more in-depth experience. Open to all levels.
This program explores a path of inner transformation by being present with our pain, fear, and aversion. It incorporates mindfulness, lojong (mind training), emptiness, and self-compassion exercises to help us move through these difficult states of mind. By opening our hearts in kindness to ourselves, the potential exists for our external reality to shift more beneficially as well.
Vénérable Amy has a gift to make Buddhist teachings very practical and explain how to use them in daily life. We rejoice to be once more able to listen to her and practice with her.
